Evansville native Don Mattingly, a former New York Yankees captain and recently named manager of the Miami Marlins, along with his wife Lori, and Mattingly Charities are hosting a fundraising event to support inner-city programs in Evansville.
An Intimate Evening with Friends presented by United Companies will be held at 6 p.m. Dec. 3 at the University of Southern Indiana Performance Center. With seating at approximately 300, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail reception and a question and answer session with Mattingly, country musician Toby Keith, and current Los Angeles Angel Albert Pujols.
Money generated from the event will benefit Evansville youth in the inner city through programs such as the Boys and Girls Club, which offers positive after school programs for children 6 to 18 years old to instill in them a sense of belonging, usefulness, influence, and competence on a daily basis. The Boys and Girls Club of Evansville serves more than 2,000 children at their two sites, Bellemeade Avenue and Fulton Square on Dresden Street.
Individual VIP reception tickets for $500 as well as individual general reception tickets for $300 can be purchased online at the Mattingly Charities Website until Nov. 19.
